Looks intentional. Either by bored kids or those entitled enabled drunk assholes yelling in the streets that are always talked about on this site or the crusties..
This makes me sad and a little angry that there are individuals in our community who would do this.
The trees didn't set themselves on fire.Now even this is being ruined.
It seems it was a busy night for terror tots.
Most likely intentional - how else?How are Christmas trees still being mulched in FEBRUARY? LOL
Is there any coherent reason that discarded trees would STILL be there waiting to be (theoretically) mulched as of Feb. 10th?
As it was raining all of yesterday, I'm guessing this was intentional. Shame to lose all that potential mulch. Lucky the fire didn't spread and destroy the park.
Someone may have lit the fire, but it was Leonard Cohen who put it out.Magnified, sanctified, be thy holy nameVilified, crucified, in the human frameA million candles burning for the love that never cameYou want it darkerWe kill the flame
We are lucky the whole park did not go up in flames, fortunately things were damp these past days. It is not easy to set a bunch of dead trees on fire, I tried at a friend's house in the country once to get rid of branches and pruning stuff. Someone must have used gasoline or lighter fluid to get this to a crisp.
Actually, charred wood makes better fertilizer than uncharred. That's what the whole 'slash and burn' method of agriculture was about.
It's actually quite easy to set these on fire. I was messing around in a friends back yard years ago. We were joking with a lighter and a tree and it immediately burst into flames. However it could have also been a cigarette butt etc... I doubt an accelerant like gasoline was used. I believe this is how rumors get started?
Perhaps accidental? Someone might have thrown a lit cigarette to its direction.
